Execution of sick prisoners or their mistreatment is in violation of several international treaties to which Iran is a signatory member.
These crimes are a portion of the deteriorating situation of Tabriz prison and a growing pressure on prison inmates. 7,000 prisoners piled up in the prison, because of the lack of the most basic medical facilities, do not get medical visits even once a year. It has been more than two months that with the excuse of repairing the kitchen, prisoners get only rice and soup. Given that many prisoners ca not afford to buy food, they are suffering from malnutrition. There are not enough blankets or beds in terms of the number of prisoners there and half of the prisoners have to rest on bare ground without minimum facilities. Any objection by the prisoners is answered by repression and beating.
Gohardasht prison inmates also suffer poor food quality, lack of medical facilities and lack of heating system. Prisoners have to pay for all the facilities, from the cost of treatment to the food and residency at their own expense. Inmates of Section 10 of this prison do not have access to hot water for more than a year due to the breakdown of the heating system.
